Player Profile: Shawn Barton

I have five cards of Shawn Barton. This one is from 1993 Topps.

Playing career: Shawn Barton pitched for the Mariners in 1992 and the Giants in 1995 and 1996. In 73 games he was 4-2 with a 4.71 ERA. A more detailed account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: A baseball instructor at three facilities in Pennsylvania – Spooky Nook Sports, Grand Slam of Reading, and B2B Baseball.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Shawn Bart, between Shawn Bartholomew, a construction superintendent in California, and Shawn Bartelt, General Manager of WRDQ Orlando. Another prominent Shawn Barton is a movie costume designer.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Charly Bashara.
